Police say an 87-year-old man was the victim of an home invasion overnight Tuesday in Pontiac.

The man, who lived on Pleasantview Drive, told police he woke up to find a masked intruder inside his home.

The intruder implied he had a weapon and demanded money from the elderly man.

The suspect, described as a black man around 150 to 160 pounds, took a flat screen television and left the house.

The caretaker of the man happened to arrive to the house and saw the suspect carrying the television in the driveway. 

The suspect dropped the television and fled the neighborhood on foot.
